How is Lil Wayne above Rakim, Wu tang Clan and Rakim, how is he even on this list.

Lil Wayne is good to he rapped with m&m

26 GZA GZA Gary Grice, better known by his stage names GZA and The Genius, is an American rapper and songwriter.

He ain't called the genus for nothing. This man is a lyrical genius, he has the right voice, the right flow, and sick beats, love that classic New York accent. Easily top 3.

Unmatchable lyrics and word play one of the greatest and the best of the Wu tang clan

27 Xzibit Xzibit

32 Krayzie Bone Krayzie Bone

One of the fastest rappers of all time

Best Lyricist ever. No other rapper on this list can compete with his flow and his word selection.

33 Big Pun Big Pun Christopher Lee Rios, better known by his stage name Big Pun, was an American rapper. Emerging from the underground hip hop scene in The Bronx borough of New York City, in the early 1990s, he was the first Latino rapper to have an album certified platinum as a solo act. more.

He's far better than Lil Wayne to start off and he's just a lyrical genius, amazing flow, great rhyming techniques, word play and basically in general a great MC. He deserves a top 10 spot and that's no doubt, all his tracks are far better than most rappers.

Should be nearer the top RIP

Great lyricist

Big Pun is literally a musical genius. His flow is amazing and his rhymes are mind blowing. Super Lyrical, You Ain't A Killer, and 100% were all amazing songs and maybe he isn't 1st, but he should definelty be ahead of Canibus, Lil' Wayne (why the f*** is he on this list) and Busta Rhymes - ILikeChocolateMilk

34 50 Cent 50 Cent Curtis James Jackson III, better known by his stage name 50 Cent, is an American rapper, actor, entrepreneur, investor, record, film, and television producer.

What we all know 50 belongs on the top 10!

35 Jadakiss
